And nothing of value was lost.

Guess you've never used an Exynos device (Galaxy S2 or Note). Samsung usually doesn't have its drivers optimized until its about ready to release and even afterwards they still manage to draw out more power.

I don't think I can justify this as a worthy upgrade from Tab 10.1. CM9 should happily carry me for a while, at least until a Nexus tablet appears sometime this year.

I had a Galaxy S2 and a Galaxy Note and now Im using a Galaxy Tab 7.7, it takes samsung a while to get things really going probably due to touchwiz, pre production software barely differs from production up until 4-6 months. No everyone sees it like you do

Drivers are the main difference from pre-production and final release. Galaxy S2 benched poorly and seemed laggy when it debuted last year but when it was released it had the best SoC and was the smoothest Android phone.

The GN 10.1 should have similar performance to the original GN assuming it uses the same Exynos 4210.

The Note 10.1 has a 1.4GHz Exynos processor. Getting away from Teg2 is reason enough to consider it even if everything else was the same. I love the idea of being able to take real notes in meetings so I might pick one up if it's available in the next 4-6 weeks. If it's later than that I'll wait for the 11.6.

I got my S2 1 day before release in my country and it came with the KF1 firmware, TBH I never noticed any 'lag' or slowdowns.. zero difference on my end upto the KG5 firmware which was the firmware in Sept-Oct. Well YMMV, some devices just run smoother than others even if they are both of the same model, based on experience.
